Fabulous Mineiro cuisine served under a thatched roof. Everything was delicious, especially the the meats, they have live music. If you're willing to try the Comida Mineira, Xapuri it's the place to go. You won't regret.

It is admittedly the best traditional food restaurant in town, with good service. The food is really excellent and true to the roots of the cuisine of Minas Gerais. Exactly why is overfilled on the weekends. But there's a place to wait for a table and meanwhile, eat and drink starters. The room is spacious and simple, resembling a kind... More

Best restaurant in BH to eat local food. The dishes are excellent and very well served. The desserts are divine. Great for Sunday lunch with family or friends. It's a little far, but worth it. If BH is visiting, be sure to go to this restaurant. But it's good to book earlier, because it is always full.

I recommend to g to this restaurant if you do not have another choice. Despite being a little bit off the beaten track. After the place got some name people start going there. But they do not hold a condition to serve crowds. I had to wait for a long time at the bar waiting for a table. People that... More

You can enter the house is yours! Thus mineiros (people of Minas Gerais - Brazil) receive their guests. In Xapurí you also feel that way. The food is freshly prepared! Traditional dishes and dishes of the house of unparalleled flavor.
